first judges comments

"Perrittis offers a great place for pizza, pasta and a touch of all things Italian.  Nestled in the burbs of Geelong this new kid on the block delivers top wood fired pizzas with fresh toppings and dessert pizzas that will rock your world.  But it's not all pizza and pasta, there is also many other menu delights to choose from and they haven't left out the vegos or the gluten free people either.  The service is friendly and welcoming with the staff making you feel like you have been served by someone that is European at heart. It's a little bit of Italy in down town Geelong.

"The meals were enjoyable, fresh and nicely cooked.  The Arancini was evenly cooked and the flavours in the filling were subtle. The spaghetti marinara had a good selection of seafood and the sauce had an even flavour and richness. The prosciutto and rocket pizza held a good base and the topping was fresh with textures and flavours complemented each other nicely.  The sticky date dessert pizza was a hit.  It was beautifully delicious.  Well done.   

"The wine list is small but sharp with some solid local and Italian wines and it was good to see craft beers on the beer list. The beverage list has something to please most tastes and budgets. An absolute plus was wine by the glass served at the table - well done!

"The prices at Perrittis are well matched to its target markets and the value for money equation is good".

what they say

After three years of running Grovedale’s successful Sandstone Café, owner Simon Parrott has expanded into a restaurant serving traditional Italian-style pizza, pasta and meals. Simon says a transformation of the nearby former fruit shop into Perrettis resulted in a new and exciting restaurant serving quality dine-in and takeaway meals for locals to enjoy in the evenings. We want people to come in and eat without having to go to Waurn Ponds or Belmont where the parking is really bad and it’s hard to get pizza on those busy nights. 
 Perrettis’ pizzas are thin crust bases topped with premium quality, well-balanced flavours. You can taste every ingredient. It’s not like you just get a mouthful of shaved ham and that’s all you taste. Every pizza’s individual. The 13-inch pizzas cost between $14 and $19, with flavours including grilled prawns with basil and garlic, slow-cooked Moroccan lamb with harissa, and ‘Mr Perrettis Aussie Cousin” – a combination of Aussie and Hawaiian pizzas with ham, pineapple, chicken and barbeque sauce. Other beautiful Italian meals available include meatballs with tomato sauce, braised meat ragout with pappardelle pasta and “awesome” spaghetti marinara. Perrettis also serves delicious dessert pizzas including sticky date, nutella and banana and lemon curd, plus tiramisu and gelati.  Simon encourages locals to try the Perrettis experience.“It’s really amazing sitting in the restaurant, eating the food and smelling the flavours coming through the open kitchen. You feel like you’re a part of the action.”
